Premature damage to pavements in Indonesia before its service life ends is partly due to climate variations and traffic loads. This study's main objective is to compare Dynamic Modulus (| E*|) and the Resilient Modulus of the Pen 60/70 AC-WC mixture using the SBS polymer modified asphalt. The performance from Marshall test shows that the highest Marshall Stability value (1007 kg) for AC-WC, and the Marshall immersion test gives the highest value of 98.13% for the same AC-WC mixture with 3% SBS. At low temperature (4°C), AC-WC with 0% SBS mixture has the highest Dynamic Modulus value (1792.7 MPa). While at high temperature (45°C), AC-WC with 3%, SBS has the highest Dynamic Modulus value (61.8 MPa). The test results show that the SBS modified asphalt mixture gives better performance at high temperatures. Overall, the AC-WC with 3% SBS mixture is better than the other mixtures. Thus, the use of SBS polymer asphalt can be a solution to improve the performance of the mixture. The dynamic modulus with AMPT test and Witczak equation showed a high correlation (0.9844). Additionally, the correlation for resilient and dynamic modulus also has higher correlation with R2 = 0.9818.
